Year 3 Letter to Parents

Year 3


Welcome to year 3 at Tredworth Junior School.


Each year group is known by a colour and in year 3 the colour is plum.  The year 3 class names are Plum 1, Plum 2 and Plum 3.  The Plum 1 teacher is Miss Rosser, in Plum 2 the teacher is called Miss Harris and the Plum 3 teacher is Mrs Prior.


In year 3 we will carry on learning maths, phonics and spellings just like you have done in year 2 but we will also learn lots of new exciting things together.  Our learning journey is “Who am I?” We will learn about all our different families, religions, our hobbies or interests and what makes us all special.  We will think about our feelings and emotions and how to keep our bodies healthy.  We will read and write stories and do art linked to these stories.  We will investigate what is special about Gloucester and Gloucestershire and how it has changed through history.  We will also explore new places across the world and learn about habitats in these countries.  We will also use DT to explore different puppets; you will try building different types of puppets throughout the year and then finally design and build your own puppet to use in our class puppet theatre.


We will have weekly PE lessons, so you will need to bring a PE kit including trainers or daps, shorts or trousers and a t-shirt or jumper.


At Tredworth we use technologies to support our learning.  You will get to use laptops and tablets.  We also use Class Dojo to record any house points you earn for good work or behaviour.  When you join Tredworth Juniors you will be assigned to a house.  All of our houses are named after mythical creatures:





Your house points will be added to all the others from your house.  The house with the most points at the end of the term receives a special prize or trip out for the day.


Tredworth Junior School is probably bigger than your infant school but you will soon learn your way around.


This is the cloakroom where you will hang your coat and bag:



You can also see the doors to the year 3 and 4 toilets are in the cloakroom too.



                                                               This is one of the year 3 classrooms.   


                                             We have 2 halls where you will have assembly,

                                             lunch and PE.



We have a large playground with a MUGA and a trim trail.



We are looking forward to meeting you!
